The Importance of Recognising a Job Well Done

Posted by Andrew Mead

It is no secret that everyone likes to be told when they are doing a good job. And when that type of praise comes from a manager or business owner, it has the potential to make an enormous impact on morale, that carries with it many benefits.
A recent study by the Division of Human Resources at Florida International University found that praise and positive reinforcement can help employees to: 

  • Take pride in their work and their job responsibilities 
  • Feel appreciated for their contributions 
  • ‘Go the extra mile’ for both the company and its customers 
  • Heighten their level of commitment and loyalty to your business  
  • Improve relationships between coworkers 
  • Be more open to constructive feedback 
  • Get more enjoyment out of the work they do 
With benefits like these up for grabs, it’s clear that praise should become a regular part of your company’s collective vocabulary. Recognition, rewards and employee incentives are proven to improve work performance and general staff wellbeing – and no one is better placed than the boss to spread that message of positivity and encouragement. 
It has to be said, however, that it is not always easy to find the time to even ensure that your staff are doing a good job – particularly for companies with a large mobile workforce -- let alone find the time to reward and congratulate them on it. That’s where vehicle tracking can help. 
A GPS fleet tracking solution can provide reliable information about your mobile workforce, highlighting areas where you can recognise drivers who are doing well and those who may be in need of additional coaching. Having immediate, easy-to-understand access to information including driver metrics, habits, and behaviors can not only help you save money and time; it can also provide you with the tools you need to dish out well-deserved pats on the back.
